Restless Soul Syndrome

As we are all being forced to change our everyday routines, and daily life habits, and our world becomes smaller, you may start to question the direction or purpose of your life.

Sometimes  we make the decision to change, and other times we are forced to make changes, which can be very painful and difficult.

Now is the time to make those overdue changes and create the life that you want.  In Restless Soul Syndrome, people ask common everyday questions as to what the purpose of their life is.  The answer isn’t as difficult as you think it may be.



To Travel or Not to Travel?

With all the travel hype going on at the moment and facing another domestic trip out west, I can’t help but think, should I, or shouldn’t I travel.  With an upcoming trip to the Grand Canyon, open space, fresh air and a minimal amount of people, I wonder if it’s safe to go or not to go.  My body craves the exercise it needs through hiking, and my soul seeks the adventure that springtime brings after being locked up in a small house all winter.

So the decision remains, do I travel or not travel with all the media hype about the corona virus.  At this time domestic travel is still considered safe and millions of people are flying at this very moment.  Is it safe to fly?  Who knows, but I do know that life has no guarantees either way.  You can stay in your own small town and be the victim of crime or catch an illness, or you can catch it abroad.

How do you know what to do?  Being safe and responsible is the main thing.  I recently went to a local health spa where I ended up catching the flu and was sick for three weeks.  Life is ironic.  What I do know is that life calls us at different times in our lives to make difficult decisions, some more difficult than others.

Every spring I take a hiking trip somewhere remote and beautiful.  I feel alive again after the long hard Midwest winter and it marks the shifting of stagnation in both body and mind.

The recent news hype and fears about the corna virus reminded me of several trips that I took in the past in which I overcame fears and challenges in some of the most beautiful places on earth.

Nomadic Tales of a Traveling Counselor shares many of my experiences in Costa Rica, Havasu Falls, Tolantongo Mexico, the Grand Canyon, including several other incredible places around the globe.

For me, life is about travel and adventure and sharing it with others is what it is all about.  We get out of our daily routines, our ruts, and our negative life patterns.  We breathe new air, smell new aromas, and connect to the land and people in healing ways.

To go or not to go?  Life waits for no one.

Killer Careers

Is your job killing you?

Most people think of toxic careers as in working with poisonous or toxic materials, but killer careers are actually high profile jobs that people stay in too long that rob them of their life’s energy.

I have worked with numerous people over the years who have stayed in careers that they grew to hate.  Getting out of bed in the morning became a struggle.  Evenings and weekends became a time of regenerating from the hard work week.

All of these people had similarities including, depression, lack of energy and little to no motivation.  Most of the people stayed in their careers for health or financial benefits, but what they didn’t realize was that their careers were actually making them sick, and because of this, they would need benefits to treat their depression and health problems to keep them in positions that were not aligned with their souls purpose.

Questions to ask yourself:

  1. Do you feel energized at the end of your work day?
  2. Do you feel inspired by the work that you do?
  3. Do you intuitively know what you are doing does not feed your soul?

We always know what’s right or wrong for us.  Staying in the wrong position can have toxic results on your body, mind or spirit.  Staying in a career that does not fit or no longer resonates will lead to stagnation and can have negative results on many levels.  Our bodies, our minds, our spirits are all connected.  You cannot affect one without affecting the others.

If you find yourself in this situation, make a list of what you would really love to do, or the fields that you want to work in and list the steps that you need to take in order to get there.

Whatever you do in life, do it with passion!
